Xerox Copy Station Preserves Library Books

Article excerpt

Xerox Corporation has unveiled a new, card- or coin-operated copier that won't break book spines or bindings in libraries or other public settings.

The Xerox Bookmark35 Copy Station is designed so the edge of its copying surface slopes at a 35-degree angle to match the natural contour of an open book. When copying pages for personal use or reference, patrons in libraries, schools, universities, law or government centers need not press the book flat to obtain acceptable copies.

"In an era of tightening budgets, library mangers need to put their resources into buying books, not repairing them," said Ursula M. Burns, vice president and general manager, Work Group Copier Business. "The Bookmark35 is designed to preserve books by eliminating stress to their bindings when making necessary copies of important pages."

The Bookmark35, which makes 35 copies per minute, produces its first copy in just over five seconds, easing the potential for queuing. It can copy pages as large as 17 by 17 inches, odds-size originals, or three-dimensional objects. It can be equipped with one of three different control panels, from extremely simple to regular, depending upon where the copier is used. Operations are aided through use of a 40-character LCD display, labeled buttons and graphic diagrams that picture the operation associated with the button.

The optional split-scan feature is convenient for copying pages from magazines and other loosely bound documents that can be laid flat on the platen glass. The Bookmark35 will scan each page separately from the binding to the edge and make a copy of each, saving time and eliminating die inaccuracy and inconvenience of repositioning each magazine page for copying.

The copier offers two pre-set enlargement and two pre-set reduction settings as well as adjustments, in one percent increments, from 64 to 141 percent of original size. …
